I never spend this much on hotels, but hotel Monterrey came highly recommended by a friend who has stayed in many Cartagena hotels. It's located just outside the old city, so close enough to walk, but also away from the chaos. The front desk staff were also very polite and helpful. However, the pool was closed for a day and a half without the front desk staff knowing about it. They kept insisting it was open, but the signs around the pool said otherwise. I think this confusion came down to a general lack of staffing. There were very few guests, so not a lot of staff. Fine for peace and quiet, but impossible to order drinks or food while at the pool. Wasnt impressed by the breakfast either - have had better at youth hostels. Wish I had spent less and stayed at a hotel near Boca Grande. There are more shopping and food options in that neighborhood.
